My name is Martin Gladdish, and I’m actually more daydreaming storyteller than ghost. I’ve been a freelance writer for over 15 years and spent the previous 20 as a lazy optimist; trying to escape various semi-successful careers in retail management and sales.
I proudly (childlike and excitedly) published my first book, The Lazy Optimist, in 2013, and am now the pen behind dozens of business stories (under my own name and others). I have ghostwritten books on subjects as diverse as coaching, translation, public speaking, forex trading, sales automation, marketing and website building.
Away from my pen, prose and poetic tendencies, I am a deep-thinking, clean-living, God-fearing, nature-loving, book-reading husband, friend and part-time magician.
For me, writing is both a means to pay for food, holidays, housing, clothing and treats; and a place to escape and explore the back of my mind.
Every time I put pen to paper, stylus to screen or fingers on keys I know I might discover a gem. If writing were not an option for me, the plainness of reality would probably cause my mind to implode.
On a happier note 😃 I would love to teach other people the wonders and joyously consuming escapism of creative writing one day… Watch this space.
